Situated along Mida Creek, not far from Dabaso village,the crab-shack restaurant is a discreet, low-impact wooden construction standing at the edge of the mangrove forest offering panoramic views of the Mida Creek.
Access to the restaurant is via a 200-meter boardwalk, which gives guests a unique opportunity to absorb the beauty and magical atmosphere of the mangrove forest and Creek channels.
The restaurant looks out to stunning views of Kirepwe Island and also provides a good spot for bird watching. The Crab Shack Dabaso offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The main dishes available includes delicious fresh fish, prawns, and crab.
The crabs are farmed as part of another MCCC eco initiative and the fish are caught by local Creek fishermen from the creek. Eating out here really does support the local community and all profits go towards MCCC conservation activities!
Guests can also pay a small fee for a guided tour of the boardwalk without having a meal. Crab shack involves the local community in practical conservation, environmental education and awareness, and sustainable management of the natural resources.
The group regularly holds mangrove plantings, beach clean-ups.
